A grandfather teaches his granddaughter of nature's delicacy with a poem about sea otters.

We live in dangerous times. When 97% of scientists around the world agree mankind is having an impact on our climate and a single person can derail the United States from a treaty agreed upon by one hundred seventy-three other countries, citizens better wake up. In this story Grandpa Daniels, a retired marine biologist, cares deeply for nature and our environment. He passes his concerns on to his granddaughter, Gabby, by writing a poem about a group of sea otters who save a kelp forest. (A group of otters — a hundred or so— really did swim up the Washington coast and enter the Strait of Juan de Fuca and revive a kelp forest ravaged by sea urchins.) The grandfather hopes she will share the poem with others. The children must be awakened.
